Point of Care Oil Analysis Makes Sense
The 2020 calendar year has certainly brought with it many challenges for a variety of industries. The medical field, pulp and paper industry and food supply chain have all been significantly impacted by the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. At the grocery store, people experienced (or are still experiencing) empty shelves, limited food supply and less variety when doing weekly shopping. In March 2020, grocery and supply sales increased 29% from the previous year (3).

Driving PdM efforts from Managing Failures to Increased Reliability through Integration
PdM strategies have grown in equipment coverage and effectiveness for going on 50 years. The program’s strategy is designed to find early stage failures to proactively manage problems versus being controlled by them. Our ability to integrate PdM results with other plant systems and data has increased dramatically over the past decade. This new capability has broaden our visibility across all of our plant assets, providing an improved path towards recognizing repeating patterns, both mechanically and operationally. This webinar will detail the next generation of PdM program design, adding improved integration with plant systems.

Fix the System, Not the Equipment
With today’s shrinking qualified workforce, it’s common for plants to have their maintenance staff busy repairing “bad actors”. Reliability Engineer Brad Lewis took a different approach in two separate plants. Supported by Reliability Specialist Cindy Moblo, he developed a program to evaluate and correct the root causes of many of the failures his plants were experiencing. Once the root causes were determined, a step-by-step program was developed to resolve the issues.

Switching Strategies: Moving to Condition Based Maintenance
Balancing cost reduction and efficiency improvement targets is a common source of frustration for maintenance and engineering managers. For facilities that operate continuously with no window for unplanned shutdowns, poor reliability and availability of machinery is far more serious, but even in factories with regular opportunities for maintenance, recovery can still be expensive and time consuming.

Rotor Bar Fault Maintenance Issue: Vibration Sensor Alert
A 398 KW MV motor that runs a blower fan in a cement plant was showing strange behavior. The vibration equipment indicated vibration amplitudes that became chronic with the passage of time. The maintenance team, not knowing what the issue was, ran the motor until the bearings had to be replaced...
